As a consumer, I would like to buy whatever hardware (cell phone) I like and install whatever OS I choose. Android compatibility would be needed, to tap into the huge number of available apps.
As cell phones close the gap to PCs, in terms of power and usage, I expect to have those same options.
Re: Swing and a miss ... of the point
Yes, and that world changing £800 marvel, didn't even support copy past!
chill out, wait for a more mature product, then make a fair review...
A back camera is mandatory for any augmented reality application
if you go to any page for which you have a saved password, and the browser auto-completes the login form, you can manipulate the html input tag, stating that the input is not of type password, and the password will show up easily...
If we have a reference to RT, surely the best name would be SkyDive
play videos stored on your device
"It can't stream anything that you've loaded directly onto the control device."
If it can show the contents of your Chrome browser, you can watch your device's videos. Just drag and drop them into a Chrome tab...
Re: And if I already wear normal glasses?
you can write an app that takes a video feed from where you are looking at, and put it right in front of your eyes (hummm, your eye), so you don't need prescription lenses anymore.

leave my SIM alone!!!
I want to be able to use my contract with whatever phone I want, like borrow one if my phone dies, and I want to be able to use my phone in whatever operator I feel like, as in traveling abroad.
Stop this "kill the SIM" nonsense now!
Re: I'm sorry...
they can always switch back to Minitel...
Dart runs 130 per cent faster
"The goal is for Dart to become twice as fast."
If I did the math right, are they trying to slow it down?
Twice as fast is 100% faster...
STOP, because they are going too fast!
If you need to ask, then you can't afford it!
cookies are used to give state to a stateless protocol. Without them you are always a new user reaching the site for the first time ever.
Of course you can avoid using cookies by passing the session variable on the URL, but for the user the consequences, for good and for bad, are the same.
I will call it choice when they give me the same hardware and I can choose which OS I want...
as evolution works, those baby sharks that did not respond to that stimuli by standing still, did all die...
Re: I won't be moving to Skype
I think the biggest problem will be for those using an msn client in their feature phones. There's no upgrade path for them...
watch out for that reset button coming your way!
So, for a moment, you really thought they would be doing it with people? really?
Re: Big screen Mistake
I would like to see a modular design like this but, instead of a phone sloting into the tablet, a compute module sloting into a small screen (making it a phone) or a big screen (making it a tablet)
yes, but is it dead or alive?
Why stop for tests?
what will they do if they found some malfunction? take it to the mechanic?
put it in the right place ASAP and then test it with the real subjects of the mission...
GO, as opposite for STOP...
That would be foolish
SIMs are great, in the way that you can insert it in whatever phone you want and access your phone service. If Apple had it their way, a software SIM, if your phone dies (battery, water, whatever), what would you need to do to access your phone service?
Re: That's all nice and everything....
I'm not holding my breath either, but because I already have FTTH. I stopped holding it 2 years ago...
The bigger fail is
allowing non latin characters on the domain.
You see a domain printed on some magazine, you want to visit that domain, but you don't have a clue on how to do it.
Of course you can argue that, for example, people living in Russia already had to use latin characters to use the web. But they already do it! And they can reach ALL the internet using them. They can even reach chinese and japanese web sites...
"Toshiba expects you to rely on the power coming from your laptop, which is convenient, and fine if you can have it plugged into the mains" - So, you don't want to have the laptop plugged into the mains and, at the same time, you want to do it with the monitor... makes perfect sense!
It's a shame...
..that they opted to make the keyboard incompatible with the previous model.
So, if I buy one of these (and I'm really thinking about it), will I have to throw the keyboard out, when I decide to upgrade to the next model? It really makes no sense (other than Asus wanting to sell another keyboard)
Nop, it means that if that sattelite comes down 2000 times, 1 of those times it will hit someone
dual core CPUs
They are perfect to Atrix-like setups. I would love to see a standard comming up so that I could buy such a screen + keyboard combo, and use it with whatever smartphone I happen to be using at that time. Upgrade the phone, keep the screen + keyboard. Maybe any phone with an HDMI port and an USB port could be made to work with it...
if your water is supplied using a reservoir at higher ground, you already have all the power stored there. To not use it is just like getting water down from a dam without generating electicity using turbines: you are just spoiling it! The only downside is less pressure on your tap.
I can see Google getting into this. They have already side-stepped JVM, now they just need another language to say goodbye to Oracle
I don't understant what the problem is
Google only released WebM when they felt the code was good enough for public eyes, and they will do the same, as they should, for new versions of Android. They never said that Android development was going to be community driven...
if you want, you can take Android 2.3 and fork it...
I prefer the concept adopted by motorola. I just wish someone would create a standard way for doing it, so we could by a standard dock and connect any Android phone to it. That would also make our dock survive the phone upgrade process...
Google should start a certification program, where developers would pay a fee to see their apps reviewed and certified as "not malware".
People would still be able to install whatever app they choose, but if it is not certified, they would know that they are on their own.
earth spins what?
it is now proved that earth orbits the sun, so let's use it as our reference...
if the sun rises first in europe and then in the US, that means that earth is rotating towards east and, as so, anything that goes up say, in Florida, after awhile will be on top of California...
even a broken watch
get's the time right, 2 times a day...
Not really comparable, is it?
The moon doesn't have a sea level to measure it against. If our planet had just half the water, the everest would be higher than it is now...
